Summer Opportunities Fair

Held annually in January, this popular event connects employers with students seeking summer work, from part-time jobs to career-related opportunities, and international experiences.

The next Summer Opportunities Fair will take place in January 2018. More information will become available in fall 2017. If you are interested in participating, please contact us at qocr@queensu.ca.  
 

Here's what one previous exhibitor at the Summer Opportunities Fair had to say:

Once again, the fair was excellent this year! Annually we visit most University fairs in Ontario, and we always walk away with the most candidates from Queen's. We are so happy to visit Kingston each year! Thank you! Cha gheill!
